Fabric of The Week 19 – Upcycled Shirts
This is one of our favourite projects and something we love doing as we love an upcycling project! This turns unloved shirts into useful and fun Pongoes!
The designing of the Pongoes was great fun – we sketched designs (basically just taking our pencils for a walk) and then used that pattern to make them up.
The making was also fairly simple – cut out two identical shapes and stich a mouth (using the machine and a range of stitches!) and sew round, leaving a hole for stuffing. The inside of the Pongoes is carbon and it is designed to soak up any smells at the bottom of your shoe!
The eyes are different buttons and I love the vintage gold and navy buttons best!
As ever these are avaliable for sale on our Folksy shop!
